Sunset Card



I cased a card that had a sunset similar to this and then went from there. This is actually three different stamps in the scene. The trees and rocks are one stamp which I stamped twice side by side, the water is a stamp I had to stamp several times to make the lake and then the grass in front is another stamp I used repeatedly. They are from Stampscapes, you can make lots of different kinds of scenes with them. Then I put it on a card and decided I wanted to make it a shadow box card but the scene was so big I had to improvise with the frame part. I first cut an oval with my Creative Memories set then did three scores on each side so it would stand up on the base of the card. Also since I did this backwards (meaning I didn't start with the shadow box to begin with) I have an open top and bottom to the frame but I think it looks just fine and doesn't ruin the effect. It is my hubby's birthday card :)
